Modesty Lannister Posted April 26, 2014 Share Posted April 26, 2014 A question about THE scene:Why does Joffrey have stones on his eyes?Can't remember what the books say about that. Could anyone inform me of this? Ser Desmond Wine's Bane explained it, but I'd add the idea was taken from the Romans who put coins over eyes of the dead, so that they can pay a fare for being ferried over the river Styx to the underworld. What I find a bit inconsistent with the world GRRM created is the choice of eyes painted on stones. This would make more sense in old God's religion with faces on weirwood trees. But, in the end … it's ok. That's how D&D see it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
